The sorting and putting away of silverware is the most annoying and time-consuming part of doing dishes. Why don’t I just sort them as I put the dirty ones INTO the washer?
Designate one basket for forks, one for knives, etc, and then when they are clean you can just grab the whole handful and toss them into the silverware drawer. Bonus if they are all facing upward.
Maybe not a *baskets* moment, but surely a *DUH!* moment!
